Help! My Teeth are Turning One Ugly Yellow!!

We're sharing how you can enjoy your coffee and keep your winning white smile too.

Sensodyne® has compensated me in connection with statements made in this post.


A few weeks ago, I was hysterically laughing with my 7-year-old daughter over our own renditions of a pop song when she squealed out, “Mom your teeth are so yellow!” My hysteria then turned to a bit of shame, and a moment of, “Ok! It is time to do something about my yellowing teeth.” I have been a long-term coffee drinker that has reaped havoc on what were – pretty white teeth. Well, considering I say, “Brush your teeth” about 15 times a day to all three of my children, I figure I better walk the walk, and talk the talk.

Having less than white teeth (or whatever my natural shade is) makes me feel older than I am. My smile and nice teeth are one of my greatest assets in my job as a keynote speaker and thought leader, and I really do think not having white teeth and a winning smiles impacts my credibility and people’s willingness to take in what I say. Having whiter teeth and a welcoming smile is definitely important in my work where I do a lot of presentations and speaking, but more importantly, I want to be able to giggle with my daughter forever, and have her say, “Mom, your teeth look amazing” – even when I am 80 . I want to maintain the “confident and beautiful” me, and without a doubt, one’s teeth says so much about what a person thinks of themselves. I always said that you have to invest in a good haircut and beautiful teeth.

Subsequently, I prioritize my GSD (get stuff done!) list getting my teeth back to what they once were – without forgoing my love of coffee, so I document on a Post-it, “GSD: Get your teeth back to your natural white!” and adhere it to my bathroom mirror

I headed down to my local drug store and canvassed the toothpaste aisle until I came to the whiteners. It was a little daunting to make the leap as I had not used a whitener before. After reading up on several options, I decided to try Sensodyne® True White®.   In part, because you get bang for your buck in that it addresses tooth sensitivity as well, which I also suffer from. For the next few weeks I followed the directions and brushed twice and day and found that my teeth actually whitened.

Sensodyne® True White® provide gentle stain removal and active stain prevention that works. The key is that you have to use the toothpaste two times daily and be diligent and patient. I have to say that I do feel more confident with my whiter teeth, but brushing it with Sensodyne® has to be kept up.

It is amazing the effect of white teeth and how much more beautiful, confident, and dare I say, glowing, I feel. Here’s to GSD!

  25. those materials or products are best to apply for maintenance. What I wanted to say is it is best to go have a teeth whitening procedure in a dental clinic and have it maintain with those products mentioned above. there are some cases that it is beyond the capability of those toothpaste or natural remedies to make your teeth white.
    Go to your dentist and have his/her recommendation about your teeth.

  26. Go to your dentist and have it whiten before applying anything. it would be much easier to let your dentist whiten your teeth and maintain it at home rather than forcing to get white with those materials and products for whitening.

  27. If surface stains are contributing to your teeth's discoloration, you can try using a teeth whitening toothpaste
    like Sensodyne True White to improve their appearance. But, it does not affect stains below the tooth's surface.
    It's important to understand how whitening toothpaste works and what to expect before you purchase a tube.

  28. As teeth whitening goes, it's really tricky to know which option to go for.
    For more difficult cases, or for people who are looking for something extra, a professional teeth whitening package is recommended. But whichever method you choose to go with, make sure you discuss it with your regular dentist. Nobody has better insight into the condition of your teeth than they do.

  29. Teeth whitening products have become increasingly popular. Of course, effectuality is one of the factors.
    But if your teeth are seriously stained, a whitening toothpaste alone won’t get the job done—no matter how hard you brush. So if you're planning to try at home teeth whitening, you'll probably want to head to your dentist first
    to see which suits you best.

  30. Fortunately, there are several at-home whitening methods that may be good for you
    and Sensodyne® True White® may indeed be one of them. But of course,
    teeth whitening at the dentist’s office has been proven to be safe and effective. You should also be aware that some at-home whitening methods may be damaging to your teeth so it is best
    to consult a dental professional first before trying them out.

  31. Luckily, you can get those pearly whites without shelling out a lot of green.
    However, it’s useful to discuss whitening methods with your dentist before trying one.
    For as long as you stick to dentist-approved methods, whitening your teeth is considered safe.

  32. Whitening toothpastes have chemical agents that can gently polish and whiten teeth. However, these substances can only remove stains that are on the surface of the teeth. But there's quite a difference with professional teeth whitening as it can brighten your teeth anywhere from three to eight shades.

  33. Sometimes, a teeth whitening toothpaste
    has little or no effect on the teeth.
    You will soon realize that this product has limitations and do not provide the results expected.
    If you are not satisfied with the results,we recommend a custom bleach trays that dental offices dispense
    which have long been proven to be effective.

  34. The very best we can expect from a whitening toothpaste is its ability to remove stains
    that sit on the exterior surface of the teeth. If you want to lighten the intrinsic color of your teeth
    you might wanna choose a professional teeth whitening that
    uses a material that is held up against the teeth.

  35. Well, the very best we can expect from a toothpaste is it being able to remove stains that sit on the exterior surface of the teeth. So, if you're not satisfied with the effect of whitening toothpaste, ask your dentist about other tooth-whitening options. He or she can best help you out.

  36. Very often, whitening toothpastes work by roughly one shade.
    Professional teeth whitening can typically whiten your teeth anywhere from three to eight shades. That is quite a difference! Teeth whitening toothpaste can help you maintain the bright, white smile you have after visiting your dentist for a whitening session.

  37. Luckily, you can get those pearly whites without shelling out a lot of green.
    However, it’s useful to discuss whitening methods with your dentist before trying one.
    For as long as you stick to dentist-approved methods, whitening your teeth is considered safe.
